Could this be a segment from a Carthaginian cutting wheel from about 150 BC?... %)
As used by the Romans for cutting iron bark timber for vessel hull frame construction?  {-) ...Derek

Dear Derek,
 
Well, I am inclined to think you could be right, otherwise it is the updated drive for a Murphy Self-Adjusting Sextant.
 
Nick, I have absolutely no earthly clue whatsoever of what this might be!!! {-)  LOL!

youve got me second guessing myself here - it was certainly at the dockyard when I took the picture, plus the dockyard still has a similar picture on their webpage, mind you it was about 6 years since I took that photo.

The Paddler that is afloat is PS Kingswear Castle which runs from Thunderbolt pier and is the last coal fired paddler.
Gillingham Pier is outside the Dockyard Basin near the lock gates. Thunderbolt Pier is on the River Wall of the Dockyard.

Medway Queen is in preservation, and Kingswear Castle is running. MQ's hull is being rebuilt in Albion Dock, Bristol, Her paddleboxes and other parts are at Gillingham Pier, where work is being done to install bollards.....

ok more research needed, the funnel was moved to Bristol just before christmas 2011, by june 2012 the paddle boxes have been moved to gillingham pier as I see them in a photo on the blog post. so I was behind the times with them at chatham dockyards.
see I've learnt more just by posting the picture, I have now read a lot more about the restoration.
